The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about friendships, family, work, cooking, hiking, reading, boating, etc., but if I had to narrow it down and list only ONE thing, I would have to say spending time with my kids and raising them well. I make time for other interests, but they're still my first priority and my greatest joy.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love cooking, especially with someone else! I also keep busy hiking, hanging out with friends/family, reading, watching movies, puttering in the garden, attempting DIY projects or crafts, listening to music (all kinds, especially small venue live) or, if I'm feeling particularly brave, attempting to play piano or sing. And I'll find ANY excuse to get out on a boat!
The most influential person in my life has been
The first thing people notice about me
People are always telling me I'm really easy to talk to and comfortable to be around.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Wow! I'd have to update this section weekly, considering how much I read. I'm almost always reading 2-3 books of various genre any given week: one novel for pure pleasure, one self-improvement, DIY or personal finance book, and one for professional growth. I read The DaVinci Code just to see what all the hype was about and ended up thoroughly loving it!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My incredible family
- Great friends and neighbors
- Good health
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I don't mind if people don't notice things about me right away; getting to know someone takes time.
Friends Describe me as
